If you’ve been keeping up with my personal blog and my tweets then you probably understand that I have a deep love for The Eagles. How could you not? There’s so much to love—Hotel California, Heartache Tonight, Desperado, Lyin’ Eyes, Peaceful Easy Feeling and of course Witchy Woman or in Seinfeld talk Witchaaay Woman. Of course, all music is subjective and Witchy Woman is about everybody’s particular dream woman. My Witchy Woman is different from your Witchy Woman. Not to say that the above is mine, but you get the idea. For this post I went with a little more of a literal understanding of the song and went after a hexing vibe. Enjoy it. Don’t forget to listen to the song below.

Do you know who HATES Cruella Deville? PETA, that’s who. Spending her days designing for her swanky label, House of Deville and spending her nights killing puppies, she’s one of the meanest villains around. Yet, despite her obvious animal cruelty issues, she has impeccable style. I can’t condone the killing of dalmatian puppies and everybody has their own preference on fur but hot damn, she’s an eccentric dresser.

Hey look, it’s everybody’s favorite spinster! Yesterday I finally looked at the Prabal Gurung fall 2011 collection and read it was inspired by Miss Havisham. For me, the inspiration rang true, lots of romantic cuts and a little bit of drama…very Dickensian and Havishamian. For those of you who haven’t read this book in your high school curriculum, allow me to enlighten you. Miss Havisham is a middle aged woman who grew up wealthy and when she was younger, she was left at the altar by the man she loved. That man was only after her fortune. Oh no, drama. After learning this news, she goes bonkers and freezes her life at the moment she found out—clocks stopped, wedding dress forever and one shoe on for the rest of her days. She then adopts a daughter and eventually raises her with the hopes she will destroy men’s lives to seek revenge. Charming. She’s not the main character of the story but she’s certainly a hoot.

Oh also, this is partly inspired by Darklamb who suggested I do a post on Estella.
If you’re on tumblr, I’m hoping you have the deep appreciation for The Addams Family that I do. After all, before there was Lydia Deetz, there was Wednesday Addams. I think I may have watched Addams Family Values over 100 times as a kid which may explain my cynical nature. I too longed to destroy Camp Chippewa. Anyway, this is Morticia, Matriarch of the Addams clan. Nobody pulls off a sexy black dress quite like she does.

Following up to yesterday’s post on Odette, let’s look at her evil twin, Odile. As mentioned yesterday, Odile is the daughter of Von Rothbart. Upon finding that his hold over Odette might be broken by the faithful love of the prince, Von Rothbart disguises Odile as Odette to ensure that his curse won’t be broken. She appears at the ball and they trick the prince and he declares his love for Odile instead of Odette. Too bad so sad. By the time the prince figures out the jig, it’s too late and he has cursed Odette to be a swan forever. Sad Trombone. In the ballet, Odile appears as a Black Swan.
